Celebrate National Dog Day at The Envoy Hotel

August 26th is National Dog Day, which was started by an author and an activist to help raise awareness around the importance of rescue and adoption. In that spirit, dog lovers and parents around the country take a little extra time and effort to celebrate their furry companions on this day every year, and we have a few ideas on how our travelers can enjoy Boston with their pooches this August and beyond. 

Here’s your guide on how to celebrate National Dog Day at The Envoy Hotel. 

Book a Stay at The Envoy Hotel

If you’re booking for late August or beyond, The Envoy Hotel is a great option for dog parents. Welcoming well-behaved pets, we charge a one-time pet fee of $100 but do not charge anything for Service Animals. We also provide a number of pet amenities including specialized dog bowls, luxurious bedding, toys, treats, and our staff will be happy to point you in the direction of the nearest dog-friendly parks. 

Fan Pier Park

Right near The Envoy Hotel, Fan Pier Park offers an easy escape to walk your dog and take in gorgeous views of the city towering over the world-famous Boston Harbor. This is one of the most gorgeous areas of the city, and it’s quiet, letting you enjoy the atmosphere like a true local while traveling with your dog. 

South Boston Bark Park

Just a couple of miles south of us is the well-known and admired South Boston Bark Park. This public dog park is a great place to walk your pooch and let them off the leash to sniff around and play with local pups whose parents standby alongside you. You can stretch this trip out and use it as a chance to explore the Southie neighborhood and even catch some rays at L Street and M Street beaches. 

Check Out More Dog Parks

Throughout the city of Boston, there are a number of other dog parks that are attractive, well reviewed, and worth checking out. If you make it up to the North End, check out the Ruff North End Dog Park at the DeFilippo Playground. And then you can head downtown and explore the historic and breathtaking Boston Common, where there are plenty of walkways and grassy lawns to hang with your dog. 

Check Out a Dog-Friendly Restaurant

Boston is also home to a large handful of restaurants that allow guests to bring dogs for outdoor seating. We recommend taking a ride on the Blue Line over to East Boston and trying out Eagle Hill Cafe before having a stroll to the waterfront for amazing views of the city. Red Barn Coffee Roasters’ Dock Square location is another dog-friendly place to eat out and enjoy some java with your dog.
